Chelsea face a stunning £100 million spend to land Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

The Sun says Van Dijk is expected to set a new world record fee for a defender by smashing through the £50million barrier

And he is also set to land wages of at least £200,000-a-week as competition hots up for one of the hottest properties in the Premier League.

Van Dijk, 25, has FIVE YEARS left on his current deal at St Mary's and would land a deal with at least that amount of seasons.

And it means Saints, who insist they are under no pressure to sell, can command top dollar to land the ex-Celtic star.
